I think you are on to something! You must take care of yourself because you only truely know how and what you need. If you can find a way to make yourself happy, you won't rely on others to provide it for you. Try a hobby, or take a walk, try to do something for yourself everyday.
My mother in law, 83 yrs old does not know how to be happy. She expects others to make her happy. But the sad truth is that "others" is never enough because she hasn't learned to find happiness in herself. She is so bitter, jeolous, and sad all the time. We don't call her enough, visit her enough, write enough, etc. It is never enough. She has never learned how to make herself happy and content. Others are scared away because she takes and not gives support. I have learned so much on what not to do in my life from her. I know she is an exteem example of this ( you probably are not this bad, in fact no body is as bad as her, lol) But at least you have discovered this early in your life, she never did, and probabaly never will. It is never to late to make the most of your life. You have helped me so much, pinkeye, but I want you to take care of yourself! Do something TODAY to make you feel good! (please)
